Fixes non-critical but annoying "MSN: Invalid User" warning box when you add and
remove a MSN buddy.  This patch is untested, but the previous patch works very well.

Comment 2 Warren Togami 2003-06-20 07:01:24 UTC
Procedure for reproducing Comment #1.
1. Apply first patch.
2. Use MSN protocol.
3. Add a few MSN buddies.
4. Remove those MSN buddies.
5. Close gaim, open gaim, login.
6. "MSN: Invalid User" warning boxes due to erroneous numbers in ~/.gaim/blist.xml

Comment 3 Warren Togami 2003-06-20 07:51:25 UTC
I retract Comment #1, the patch introduces a new crash that cannot be fixed
without massive changes in 0.65 CVS.  The original patch is good enough for now.


Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2003-07-24 23:25:21 UTC
0.66 should be in rawhide shortly.
